Dr Allan Dodds writes: On returning from holiday I listened to a voicemail which said: “Richard Martin is filing a lawsuit against you”. The call came from 0161 850 3644. I rang the number and was met with a voice with a thick Indian accent. The person said that he was employed by HMRC and asked me to confirm my postal address, which I did. He them asked me for my National Insurance Number which I declined to give him. He then called me a ‘b*st*rd” and became abusive and threatening. so I hung up on him.
I take it that this is an attempt at identity theft and have reported it to Action Fraud.
